What makes you think you're going to have a choice? Your childrens children will be getting iPhones directly implanted in their eyes with the rest of the new jack jits that are online via neural net connections.

Energy flows where the attention goes. Most of the world are already worshiping the screen. Do you know what that means?

so what!

people slowly poison themselves with all types of cigarettes, alcohol & etc, I'm not fretting over people trying to enhance themselves.

human beings from all across the world for a millennia's have imagined themselves to be greater than what they are. from half-man to half-beast to cyberfunk like alterations.

people literally do it to themselves today.

Difference being is that with the low level implant thing there is no off switch, no exit and everything you perceive is edited by the intent of whoever is programming.

Not that much different to now really except we call that religion or socialization. Once chipped that Mind Made Prison will become totally invisible and thoroughly unquestionable as you/your decedents simply will not even be able to consider the options...

Heaven or hell? I'll let you tell it. For me the implications of where we actually are and what this all means is interesting because I already think we're in a pixelated artificial reality that is a well engineered deception that uses your Soul as a credit to build the Game we're playing. This is just the next level for those who don't comprehend the shadows depth or true meaning of the symbolism.

Once bitten... They count on your ignorance to generate profits. Either you see this or won't and never will.

thats why open source programming is the only way to do it ethically. :sas2:


Lessons for creating good open source software[edit]​

Raymond points to 19 "lessons" learned from various software development efforts, each describing attributes associated with good practice in open source software development:[3]

  1. Every good work of software starts by scratching a developer's personal itch.
  2. Good programmers know what to write. Great ones know what to rewrite (and reuse).
  3. Plan to throw one [version] away; you will, anyhow (copied from Frederick Brooks's The Mythical Man-Month).
  4. If you have the right attitude, interesting problems will find you.
  5. When you lose interest in a program, your last duty to it is to hand it off to a competent successor.
  6. Treating your users as co-developers is your least-hassle route to rapid code improvement and effective debugging.
  7. Release early. Release often. And listen to your customers.
  8. Given a large enough beta-tester and co-developer base, almost every problem will be characterized quickly and the fix obvious to someone.
  9. Smart data structures and dumb code works a lot better than the other way around.
  10. If you treat your beta-testers as if they're your most valuable resource, they will respond by becoming your most valuable resource.
  11. The next best thing to having good ideas is recognizing good ideas from your users. Sometimes the latter is better.
  12. Often, the most striking and innovative solutions come from realizing that your concept of the problem was wrong.
  13. Perfection (in design) is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but rather when there is nothing more to take away. (Attributed to Antoine de Saint-Exupéry)
  14. Any tool should be useful in the expected way, but a truly great tool lends itself to uses you never expected.
  15. When writing gateway software of any kind, take pains to disturb the data stream as little as possible—and never throw away information unless the recipient forces you to!
  16. When your language is nowhere near Turing-complete, syntactic sugar can be your friend.
  17. A security system is only as secure as its secret. Beware of pseudo-secrets.
  18. To solve an interesting problem, start by finding a problem that is interesting to you.
  19. Provided the development coordinator has a communications medium at least as good as the Internet, and knows how to lead without coercion, many heads are inevitably better than one.

Does this world look like ethics is high on anyone with powers priority list?

It is what it is to me as I'm all about using this life to try and discover the truth about me, my Self, this realm and the rest but this AI move seems like such an obvious extension of the current paradigm which is an actual hell dressed to seem like heaven that I like to sprinkle some discussion here and there to get people thinking because, as I said, they count on your ignorance to generate profits.

Not questioning the narrative or the direction of life itself as well the bigger perspective is the defacto standard for those who believe they're free when the truth is opposite. Pivoting from "Who cares?" to "Open source!" at least shows some kind of thinking so keep at it in between waving the pom poms for the return of the (false) King.

It wild how close the AI trained music generation is getting.






One of the most distinctive, often imitated but never duplicated vocal tones and this level of AI is amazing me with how close it is, even in such a basic state. Some rough points where its out of key and choppy but overall this is crazy.

OpenAI debuts Whisper API for speech-to-text transcription and translation​

To coincide with the rollout of the ChatGPT API, OpenAI today launched the Whisper API, a hosted version of the open source Whisper speech-to-text model that the company released in September.

Priced at $0.006 per minute, Whisper is an automatic speech recognition system that OpenAI claims enables “robust” transcription in multiple languages as well as translation from those languages into English. It takes files in a variety of formats, including M4A, MP3, MP4, MPEG, MPGA, WAV and WEBM.

Countless organizations have developed highly capable speech recognition systems, which sit at the core of software and services from tech giants like Google, Amazon and Meta. But what makes Whisper different is that it was trained on 680,000 hours of multilingual and “multitask” data collected from the web, according to OpenAI president and chairman Greg Brockman, which lead to improved recognition of unique accents, background noise and technical jargon.


“We released a model, but that actually was not enough to cause the whole developer ecosystem to build around it,” Brockman said in a video call with TechCrunch yesterday afternoon. “The Whisper API is the same large model that you can get open source, but we’ve optimized to the extreme. It’s much, much faster and extremely convenient.”

To Brockman’s point, there’s plenty in the way of barriers when it comes to enterprises adopting voice transcription technology. According to a 2020 Statista survey, companies cite accuracy, accent- or dialect-related recognition issues and cost as the top reasons they haven’t embraced tech like tech-to-speech.

Whisper has its limitations, though — particularly in the area of “next-word” prediction. Because the system was trained on a large amount of noisy data, OpenAI cautions that Whisper might include words in its transcriptions that weren’t actually spoken — possibly because it’s both trying to predict the next word in audio and transcribe the audio recording itself. Moreover, Whisper doesn’t perform equally well across languages, suffering from a higher error rate when it comes to speakers of languages that aren’t well-represented in the training data.

That last bit is nothing new to the world of speech recognition, unfortunately. Biases have long plagued even the best systems, with a 2020 Stanford study finding systems from Amazon, Apple, Google, IBM and Microsoft made far fewer errors — about 19% — with users who are white than with users who are Black.


Despite this, OpenAI sees Whisper’s transcription capabilities being used to improve existing apps, services, products and tools. Already, AI-powered language learning app Speak is using the Whisper API to power a new in-app virtual speaking companion.


If OpenAI can break into the speech-to-text market in a major way, it could be quite profitable for the Microsoft-backed company. According to one report, the segment could be worth $5.4 billion by 2026, up from $2.2 billion in 2021.

“Our picture is that we really want to be this universal intelligence,” Brockman said. “We really want to, very flexibly, be able to take in whatever kind of data you have — whatever kind of task you want to accomplish — and be a force multiplier on that attention.”

If they don’t get the fúck outta here with this a Dollar Tree “Baby Be Mine” sounding ass shít with that zombie cover art.

Song sounds like some rejected Japanese City Pop with that weak Stevie Wonder harmonica during the break.

Sorry this ain’t even remotely close to MJ and real fans would know within 10 seconds. With that said, the fukkery potential for AI is real and is now. Scary times.
